Wine Biscuits

This is such an Italian biscuit in my house.

Every neighbor has a slightly different recipe.

This is my Moms recipe and I love it but I did change the wine.

One cup oil

One cup of a sweet red wine. My Mom would use whatever red wine she had on hand but I like the taste of the sweet red wine.

One cup of sugar

3 heaping tablespoons of baking powder

One teaspoon salt

4 cups all purpose flour

Mix everything together and kneed till the dough is soft.

Roll into long ropes on a floured surface.

I make my biscuits into hearts but you can make circles or sticks.

One egg beaten very well.

Place on a silpac and brush with the beaten egg  just to give the biscuits a nice glaze.

Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes then keep cooking in the oven till they are golden brown. This usually takes maybe a couple of minutes more.

Always look on the bottom of the biscuit to see if it is a good color.

Cool and place in a airtight container.

Serve with your best pot of tea or coffee.
